Experience the beautiful warm waters of the Great Barrier Reef, world heritage-listed living masterpiece, so big it can be seen from outer space. The Indo-Pacific region has the worlds greatest diversity of marine life and corals. Expect to see turtles, clownfish, giant clams, a wonderful variety of colourful fish, countless invertebrates and the famous maori wrasse. Diving the Great Barrier Reef is a must, put us on your “bucket list”!

Big Game offers superb scuba diving and snorkelling expeditions from Cairns, the Gateway of The Great Barrier Reef. This is a exciting way to explore the fascinating underwater world, because we go to the less visited coral reefs that are isolated from the daily tourism boats. As we aren’t constrained by a tour schedule, we can move from one location to the other in whatever time frame you desire.

We can accomodate all levels, whether a first timer or an experienced dive enthusiast. Our vessel “Shikari”, provides a fast and comfortable ride out to the reef. Our friendly crew will guide you through a truly memorable experience with your own schedule. Two to three dives and snorkelling the reefs edge during your surface interval is our usual day. On your exclusive charter, if you wish we can troll off the reef for small marlin, sailfish and other pelagics. All billfish (marlin and sailfish) are released.

Big Game also offers great snorkelling for families of all ages. Snorkelling is the easiest way to enjoy the colours and variety of fragile corals and fish life found in the shallow lagoons. Take the chance to swim in Australia’s top snorkelling destinations with a local and knowledgable guide!

All trips are sole charter, ranging from single to multiple day adventures!
